Conducting City Business During COVID-19

Lifeguard headquarters

Under Phase 1, which is now in place, City Hall is staffed at half-capacity. Employees and members of the public must wear face coverings indoors at City facilities, practice social distancing, and screen for COVID-19 symptoms. Administrative offices at the Public Works Department and Beach Safety Center remain closed to the public. Public meetings continue to be held remotely through the end of September, which may be extended if provided for by the Governor through Executive Order. 

The Powerhouse Community Center is open for private events with City-issued operational permits. The permits have been developed in accordance with California Department of Public Health guidance.

Originally scheduled for implementation Sept. 2, Phase 2 had envisioned a full offering of City services and full, in-person staffing while retaining COVID-19 protocols.
